Journey of A Dreamer who Made His Dreams Come True
26th, December 2017 - My journey
The title sounds a bit cliche but this is a true story of a man who always believed that “If you can dream it, you can do it.” This is the story of Ritesh Shah, the man who made his dreams come true. He began his career with the unending fire as an Implant trainee at L&T during his academics and moved along to diverse in strong multinational companies like Essar Group & Reliance Industries. He holds an MBA in Supply Chain Management from Welingkar Institute of Management along with Bachelor degree in Electrical Engineering.
This is what a normal studious person can do, but Ritesh has the perspective to see things differently and a novel innovative approach towards everything he saw in this world. Problem is the rigidness and slow speed of Indian manufacturers to adopt the technology, which was directly leading them to process inefficiencies and reducing marketing exposure as well.
SwitchBazaar is the dream of some real followers of “Make in India” and “Digital India” initiative.
This gave him a shock but at the same time inspires him to conceptualize and form a platform named SwitchBazaar where electrical suppliers can easily promote their goods & services on a global level. The vision, the strong problem-solving perspective, and the ability to seeing what people usually miss are what led him to create this mega dream, SwitchBazaar.
But like they say, beginnings are the hardest. No business becomes super successful fortnight. SwitchBazaar had taken birth in the mind of Ritesh, but taking it to being the problem solver for the larger industrial population of India was not at all easy. But someone also has said that “there’s a will, there’s a way”. Ritesh created the SwitchBazaar with supreme hard work, determination and with strong man-power from different expertise. He found people who were best in their field and made them all fall in love with the idea. It took nights, hard days, and the endless struggle to solve this basic need of the market, but good things happen to those who work hard and have patience.Work hard for your dreams and all your dreams will definitely come true. So SwitchBazaar team does the same, they work hard and had faith through patience. Everyone needs some specific qualities in order to create something different, to bring the innovation, and Ritesh Shah has them all.
Ritesh has faith that a dream has come to reality, things have begun to change and that time is not far when each and every electrical business owner (Buyer/Sellers) will utilize SwitchBazaar to solve his business needs, that’s what we wish for SwitchBazaar. SwitchBazaar has begun to simplify the unorganized supply chain with a technology-first approach and it will.
Ritesh’s idea is also a wonder for other people as switchBazaar is one-Stop Sourcing for all Electrical Products: it brings 600+ Sub-categories of Electrical Products in over 25 different major categories, including Switchgear, Controlgears, Fuser gear, Lighting & Luminaries, Wires & Cables and many more. Oyo room, growing business has made SwitchBazaar as their corporate hospitality partner.
As a platform, SwitchBazaar continues to develop services to help businesses do more and discover new opportunities. Whether it’s sourcing from your mobile phone or contacting suppliers in their local area turn to SwitchBazaar for all electrical needs.
Some dreams are seen by closed eyes and some dreams are seen by opened eyes. The opened eye dream of Ritesh Shah gave birth to such a beautiful idea. Dreaming is not enough put your heart and soul in that dream, make that dream true. Have faith in your idea.
